Why Bronze?

Christine Sage works in a variety of mediums - corten steel, iron, aluminium and fibreglass but her monumental work is usually formed in bronze.

 

Bronze is timeless and durable which is why it has been used for centuries and remains the most used material for public stutue works around the world.

Bronze requires minimal maintenance and it easily blends with its surroundings.
